The Yada Yada Prayer Group was "gettin' down" with God in prayer and praise one night when a heroin-crazed woman barged into my house, demanded our valuables, and threatened us with a 10-inch knife. We wondered if we'd ever get back to normal after this terrifying experience. I assumed we would. After all, we'd started praying together at the Chicago Women's Conference last spring, and we'd been through a lot already as spiritual sisters. This was just one more hurdle to conquer, right?

That’s the flummoxed state of Edward Stanton, a 42-year-old with Asperger’s syndrome. His job, his therapist, and his best friends are all gone. Even his nightly ritual of watching Dragnet reruns has short-circuited. But a call from his friend Donna in Idaho, telling him that her son Kyle is in trouble, launches Edward from his rigidly scheduled existence in Billings, Montana, to the open road. He and Kyle, a sweet little boy turned sullen adolescent, debate football, music, and bodily functions (“Why do you pee so much?” Kyle asks).

If you'd like to improve your ability to learn, memorize and recall the Psalms of the Bible by as much as 100%, 200%, even 300% (or more)...using simple memory techniques that you can learn in 15-20 minutes (or less), then this may be the most important book that you will ever listen to. Believe it or not, it really doesn't matter if you think you have a good memory or not.

In Donald Miller's early years, he was vaguely familiar with a distant God. But when he came to know Jesus Christ, he pursued the Christian life with great zeal. Within a few years he had a successful ministry that ultimately left him feeling empty, burned out, and, once again, far away from God. In this intimate, soul-searching account, Miller describes his remarkable journey back to a culturally relevant, infinitely loving God.

Would you listen to Redeeming Love again? Why?

I would listen again. This is an amazing story.






What does Kate Forbes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Very well done.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This story touched the core of me. I want to love others better, receive love from others more easily, and rest in Gods love always. Who would have thought a story book would evoke such a deep emotional response?


Any additional comments?

Thank-you Francine Rivers.and Kate Forbes

A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don't.

I don't know how true this story really rings. I have had no contact with black people, except for rich folk, that have education, and money. I know some who treat us white girls like we are their servants. Some if them are kind, and considerate also. I really wish we could see beyond the skin color, and love each other. This book is a very interesting book.
